    Form Protect (Office 2K)

    I have a form that works all OK for form check and drop boxes etc, but due to form protect on the hyper link will not work.
    And visa-versa turn off form protection then hyper link works but not form.

    Normal:

    Form Field Shading = ON
    Protect Form = on

    Fields work OK and Hyper link not

    Seems I can only get it working one or the other, and Word will only protect ALL including link .....

    Help

    Thanks

    Here is a clunky solution. I hope someone else has a better one.

    You could (with the document unprotected) insert continuous section breaks immediately before and after the link.
    Then select Tools | Protect Document...., click Forms, then click Sections..., and uncheck the section with the link (in the sample document, Section 2). Click OK twice. The document is now protected for forms except for the link.

    Hi David,

    Check Cindy Meister's site for a solution using macro button fields.
